I fell asleep to “Alter Bridge” the newest album “The Last Hero” followed by “Nothing but Thieves”

I exercised to “Alice Cooper” I only have 3 of his albums so I put all 3 on shuffle.

I did it!  4 day week in Canada though 6000 crunches, 480 squats, 400 pushups, & 400 leg lifts!

7500 crunches, 600 squats, 500 leg lifts, & 500 pushups in a 5 day week.

Every day of the week starts with 60 squats, a 3 minute rest, 60 more squats, 50 leg lifts on my back, 1500 crunches.  Then 50 more leg lifts on my hands & knees, then 100 pushups.

I expected I’d have to gradually build up to the numbers?  I didn’t though I just took it very slow the first 2 days.  In 2008 & 2009 I didn’t really understand what was going on.  I blacked immediately after Kim got into the back of the Ambulance that a co-worker called for me.  The last thing I remember is telling Kim “It’ll be OK sweetie”.  Cancer was constantly “on my mind” when I realized what had happened until roughly the middle of 2013.  Now the further away from it I get it becomes more of a “What the heck was that?”  My advice, don’t get cancer!  Cancer put a strain on most relationships friends, family, Kim, & random people who just stare at the wacko with an iPatch in the wheelchair.  I immediately threw gas on the fire & reacted very poorly to say the least.  Why?  I don’t know.  At the end of the day I was embarrassed & thought it was all my fault, & wanted to bring everyone down to what I thought was my level.  It wasn’t my level.  I don’t like to air my “dirty laundry”, Kim took the brunt of my anger & depression.  I love Kim & I know that’s not OK under any circumstance.  If anyone’s a hero in this story, it’s Kim.  I’m very lucky I met her & that she’s still a part of my life, along with the rest of my family & friends.

I still feel very self-conscious about my iPatch.  Everyone has seen some one in a wheelchair before, but an iPatch isn’t a common thing.  As self-conscious as I feel in public I tend to think to myself “WHAT?  REALLY?  Is this beautiful face offending you?  If it is avert your eyes!”


The election is still on my mind, but “in the end” I can’t change the outcome.  We’ve all had a day to question, worry, live in denial, & freak out.  Today is a new day.  If you’re American & don’t like the outcome find a peaceful way to make a difference.  If you’re happy with the outcome or from another country, your hands are tied, might as well get over it.

I don’t vote for anything in Canada.  There has never been any type of election here that horrendously changed the game.  Every election in Canada, the candidates (to me) have been very similar.  I don’t want to waste my time figuring out who the lesser evil is.  For me, the US election was evil, but very cut & dry.  The outcome I cannot change.  My advice to those that aren’t happy, YOU make a change if you can, sitting around & complaining, calling people names, & dragging Trump’s name through the mud will not solve/change anything.  Stay level headed & make yourself happy, don’t hurt anyone in any way.  I want to punch a hole in the wall.  I refuse to, because it does nothing beneficial for me or anyone else!  Relax & do something positive.

Today’s workout was brought to you by “I Mother Earth” the album “Dig”. I am so there in April to see them for the first time since ’99 or 2000.


I fell asleep to “In Flames” the album “Sounds of a Playground Fading”


I’ve had “I Mother Earth” “…on my mind…” since I heard about them coming to Saskatchewan!!!!


Why is it that metal or hard rock music is blamed for everything bad that happens? Like the shootings at Columbine were instantly Marilyn Manson’s fault, & now I’m watching some documentary on serial killers on Netflix & the soundtrack so far is metal music. It’s not the music that did whatever to the victims, it’s the criminals.


Hannibal Lecter in “Silence of the Lambs” listened to classical music & was considered to be an evil murderer. I’m not saying that classical music will make you snap, I don’t think music changes that much of your everyday personality. I think the type of music you listen to depends on your mood at the moment. Who controls your music selection you or whatever device you’re listening to music on?


35 years ago on Sunday Nikki Sixx formed “Motley Crue”
